Shenmue III Delayed to November

It looks like Shenmue fans are going to have to wait a little while longer before they can get their hands on the series’ highly-anticipated third entry. Indeed, the game has been delayed once more, but not by all that much this time. Eager fans and backers are only going to have to wait until…

BloodStained: Ritual of the Night Gets a Release Date!

It’s been four years now since Koji Igarashi and his team introduced the world to their vision for a proper spiritual successor to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

Star Citizen Makes an Appearance at Gamescom

Mighty No. 9 Isn’t A Complete Loss

Well, it’s finally happened. The release date for Mighty No.9 finally arrived last week, and the game was, unfortunately, not very good.
